At A Glance

Invasive Plant Removal

Issue: Leeds Pond Preserve was being overrun by invasive species

Solution: Spadefoot removed invasive species that were killing off native plants, negatively impacting native birds and habitats. The team planted native plants to win back the space and build a complex healthy environment to benefit the area.

The Project Details

Watch the short video below documenting our work conducted on behalf of The Science Museum of Long Island.

The project was generously funded by the Nassau County Soil and Water Conservation District.

We have an enormous capacity to effect positive change; little by little we can take back overrun wild places and turn them into thriving native ecosystems. 

This is an ongoing project and we could use all the help we can get, to donate to this project please click here.
